Please join the South Florida WTS Chapter as we recognize outstanding women making a difference in our industry and region!

Every year, WTS awards exceptional young women scholarships to support and encourage their advancement in the transportation industry. This year we are excited to announce two deserving students at our 2016 Annual Scholarship Event - Yinan Zheng and Genevieve Bajwa both students from Florida International University.
As our Scholarship Event Keynote Speaker, we are honored to have Congressman Ted Deutch join us. Congressman Ted Deutch, represents Florida's 21st district, home to communities throughout western Palm Beach County and Broward County in sunny South Florida. He is now serving his fourth term in the 114th Congress.
Congressman Ted Deutch has been described as a rising voice in the House Democratic Caucus by the Washington newspaper Roll Call and was previously named one of the Forward newspaper's top Jewish politicians to watch. He is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, the House Ethics Committee, and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on which he serves as Ranking Democrat on the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee.

Please join us in celebrating these up and coming bright young women while also honoring our exceptional leadership who are making a difference in our community!

Congressman Ted Deutch is noted by the South Florida Sun Sentinel for his accessible personality, sense of humor, and thoughtful approach to the issues. Ted has proven himself to be energetic advocate for the priorities of his constituents. His plan to strengthen Social Security and improve benefits for all retirees was highlighted by the New York Times, and his efforts to boost cancer research, fight hunger and poverty, and institute sensible criminal justice reforms has won praise from prominent organizations like the American Cancer Society, the National Committee to Preserve Medicare and Social Security, and the American Bar Association.

Ted's priorities in the 114th Congress include promoting economic opportunity in South Florida, reducing the influence of big money in our elections, reforming our broken immigration system, and advancing the security interests of the United States, Israel, and our allies.
Ted Deutch, and his wife of 22 years, Jill Deutch, have lived and worked in South Florida since 1997. They live with their three children in West Boca Raton, a community centered in Florida's 21st district, and are members of the B'nai Torah Congregation. Prior to holding public office, Ted enjoyed a successful career as a commercial real estate attorney, and today Jill continues her work as Director of Development at Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach. Born and raised in the working class community of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Ted is the youngest son of Jean and the late Bernard Deutch, a World War II veteran who earned a Purple Heart at the Battle of the Bulge. A graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Michigan Law School, Ted's passion for serving the community earned him the prestigious Harry S. Truman Scholarship and eventually inspired him to run for the Florida State Senate in 2006.
